Exchange Student Class

I recently got the chance to teach a class to a group of teenage exchange students from Japan. I have to admit I was a little worried at first because it was 20 students and 2 teachers and they didn't speak very much english. But, everything turned out pretty well. They had never done any scrapboking before so they stuck to the examples pretty closely at  first, but by the 3rd page they were adding their own creative touches to their pages and all of them really seemed to enjoy it. Here are a few of the pages we did.

Since I have only boys in my house it's nice to do some girlie pages once in a while. And I could not ask for a cuter girl than my best friend's daughter Cadence. Isn't she adorable??? She's 4 and her mom and I have been friends since 6th grade. I only get to see them once or twice a year since they live half way across the country from me, but she sends lots of great pictures. So I keep an album for them and make copies of all the pages for her to have.

Echo Park Summer Days

Hello! Wanted to share these three fun layouts I did with the Echo Park Summer Days collection. I love this collection! It went great with these pictures I took of my boys and my oldest's half brother and sister at the Kinetic Sculpture Race. Its fun to have them all together like that and I got some great pictures. In fact I took so many I have two more pages I've done, two more in progress and at least two or three more I need to do.

Elegant Edges Cards

Here are a few more Cricut cards I did with  the Elegant Edges cartridge. This cartridge has some fabulous shapes for card making. The stamps are from Close To My Heart and Ippity and the patterned paper is from a DCWV stack. Enjoy!
